For 20 years in the gaming industry, Rockstar has taught how to make games. This is confirmed by the millions of gamers who play the games and allow developers to beat sales records. The reason is simple - Rockstar always includes the bar in the game, making players anxiously waiting for the release of new studio projects.
The story tells of the Van der Linde gang, which, after an unsuccessful robbery, is forced to hide in the snow. Having lost close friends in the shootout, western men try to sink to the bottom and find a way to save up money for a relaxed old age.
We play for Arthur Morgan, he is the right hand of the leader of the Dutch van der Linde gang. The user plays as John Marston, the hero of the game.
Welcome to the Van Der Linde Band
The story of Red Dead Redemption 2 set in 1899 when the law came to the Wild West and criminal gangs got used to a new order. One such group is headed by Dutch Van Der Linde, who did not want to follow the amendments to the law. After the unsuccessful robbery of a gang, lawyers start to hunt down, forcing Van Der Linde's wardens to seek new shelter.
The main character in this game was Arthur Morgan, whom Dutch had taken to the gang when he was a kid, and teach criminal skills. As a result, the player became a skilled thug who knows how to deal with words and weapons. But, recently, he began to ask himself to leave this criminal path, but that was not happening.
Against the background of the ongoing fight against the law and the heartache of the hero, Red Dead Redemption 2 will take place. In general, the gameplay of the new "red dead 2" is like GTA 5, where the hero had to deal with the FBI, passing criminal cases. Also, Arthur Morgan reminds me of Michael, the same criminal of the old temper.
All the characters in Red Dead Redemption 2 are free of identity and their own features. They are not only evil or good-natured but also have unique habits and beliefs. For example, there is a guy from a Native American tribe who worships nature and gets mad when someone kills animals for fun. There is also an arrogant thug who loves to kill and rape. You will not list all the types, and it would be better for you to look at it yourself.
The gang members not only serve the extras at the camp but also create an atmosphere that makes Red Dead Redemption 2 lively. To begin with, the characters are always busy: chefs are cooking, thief cleaning weapons or playing cards, Dutch is thinking of a new plan and so on. Also, any of the camp's residents may ask Arthur for help.
You can imagine that you will have to train how you use each weapon, and how you will act to the people who appear in front of you, whether on solo missions or even with the entire gang.
Red Dead Redemption 2 Controls
One of the most noticeable improvements of the PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2 compared to the consoles is the higher refresh rate. The limitation to 30 frames per second is not appropriate. Rather, the game also runs at more than 60 fps, if you have powerful hardware. The difference between 30 fps and 60 fps is clear, as the entire gameplay feels smoother, more fluid and more responsive.
Also, the mouse control facilitates both the speed and the accuracy of aiming, in some places it seems a bit too easy. Speaking of controls: the key tasks on the keyboard can be changed completely, but strangely not in the main menu, but only on the menu that you call up directly in a game. Up to two buttons can be assigned to an action. Mouse speed and mouse accuracy can be changed in several stages. Controllers are supported, but cannot be freely assigned. Instead, there are twelve settings and several options to set accuracy when aiming.
Plenty of graphics options
Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC supports HDR, widescreen resolution as well as multiple monitors and ultra Wildscreen resolutions (but with margins left and right in the cutscenes). The field of vision can be changed in eleven steps depending on the view. The quality of textures, filtering, lighting, shadows, water, reflections, structure, grass shadows, plants, fur and other elements can be defined in several stages - mostly from low to high or ultra. The motion blur can be switched off completely. The graphics quality can be adjusted widely - you can even choose between DirectX 12 and Vulkan. Vulkan turns out to be a bit quicker. Despite the variety of options, the presentation and explanations of the respective settings are limited to the essentials. The latest PC versions from Ubisoft are clearly ahead here.
The game world, already impressive on the consoles, looks a bit better on the PC, although you have to take a closer look at some of the improvements. The developers want to have improved the visibility, the global lighting quality, the representation of day and night, the surrounding obscuration as well as various shadow effects such as soft and distant shadows. The same applies to the representation of animal skins, the vegetation on the ground and other plant details.
Red Dead Redemption 2 Horse
Red Dead Redemption 2 appears to have a kind of simulator of complete relationship with your horse: it will be possible to take care of it, which can improve your relationship and directly your control over the animal, especially in more tense situations. You can take items and even dead bodies from other animals you hunt. Also, different types of horses will be better used for different types of missions.
Red Dead Redemption 2 Rating
Red Dead Redemption 2 was an amazing game, but Rockstar did not bring any considerable changes. We all also play for the bad guys fighting the law, and we all also rob, kill and accomplish missions. Even the six-year-old shooting game has changed little.
Still, Red Dead Redemption 2 scores 9 out of 10 for a beautifully crafted world, exciting storyline, and addictive gameplay. If you have a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, don’t miss this game.
